Hi all .
I'm am firstly an Artist ? , have been fearlessly independently most of my life.
The past 5 years I developed a neurological condition and as a result all of the above went out the window, I still haven't got my head around needing help to even paint and do basic stuff.  This lock down has done my head in.
On a good point I do have a great support around me.

    Hello @Jayne__art60 and welcome to our little community. I'm really glad you've found your way to us. It can be very difficult when circumstances challenge our independence but there'll be many here who can relate.
    Is there anything you think we'd be able to support you with or advice you might need?

    In the meantime, we have an amazing thread here on the community where our members share their artwork and creativity. If you'd like to share some of your painting with us there, you'd be more than welcome. Have a look at our KaleidoScope gallery if you get a chance. :smiley:

    Hi @Jayne__art60 Welcome to the community great to have you on board. I wish I had your creativity I am hopeless at anything artistic paint by numbers is my sort of level, though I did used to like colouring before I had eyesight issues.

    The lockdown has been tough but looking forward to a bit more easing now

    Look forward to seeing you around

    Hi @Jayne__art60 - Welcome to the community from me too. I'm sorry to read about the impact of your neurological disorder, but it's good to read you're still painting, even if you need help. It would be great if you'd share your art on the Kaleidoscope thread Adrian mentioned.
    I hope you enjoy being a part of the community; it's very friendly & supportive. :)
